The High School Report: The Placement, Performance and Persistence of New Students from SFUSD High Schools at CCSF.
This report provides information to City College of San Francisco (CCSF) faculty and administrators about graduating high school seniors who have enrolled at CCSF. This report will be produced annually and disseminated to all San Francisco Unified School District high schools and CCSF deans, program coordinators and department chairs. The report is divided into eight sections organized around tables that present descriptive information about the performance of new 16- to 19-year-old students at CCSF in the 1998-1999 school year. The first three sections look at placement in English, ESL and mathematics of new 16 to 19 year old students. In English and mathematics, half of these students placed at a basic skills level. In ESL placement was somewhat higher for both students from SFUSD high schools as well as from high schools outside of San Francisco. Statistically significant differences also existed within the cohort of students examined. Differences existed by type of high school, with the students from the continuation high schools doing the least well in both the fall and the spring. The real differences existed at the individual high school level. Student from both Lowell and foreign high schools did notably better than others. (JJL)
